Yesterday, I told you about Sabrina – and how she burned 985 calories in 53 minutes.
And we talked about how she did it … with her husband Mike’s new “BareFit” approach to training.
What is “BareFit”?
Glad you asked! 😉
We’re back today with a guest article from Mike (Sabrina’s husband, who happens to be a good friend of mine, as well as a Master Trainer and a Contributor to Men’s Health) … he explains what the idea is all about … and even hooks us up with what a week of workouts would look like.
NEW “BareFit” (2 workouts a week template)
by Mike Whitfield, Creator, GoBarefit
Hitting your muscles from different “angles”…
“Surprising” your body with “cutting edge” exercises…
“Secret tricks” using ancient Bulgarian methods…
Listen, the LAST thing you need is a complicated exercise program when you’re already busy and stressed out… not to mention you may not be that motivated.
If you had to learn 15 new exercises just to get started, I wouldn’t be motivated either. Geez, learning the darn workout would take longer than the workout itself…
… all in glory of “the secret”.
So … forget the madness. You’re going to go in the opposite direction of the “fluff” and “noise” and do MORE of what works like …
A Push …
A Pull …
A lower body exercise …
An ab exercise …
And you’ll do it in 4 exercises or less with a routine you can memorize in 30 seconds or less.
Call this the “Go BareFit” approach. You’re going to do the bare minimum to stay consistent and motivated … and without the “fluff” like burpee contests or “secret” exercises.
Step 1 – Pick ANY 2 days of the week to commit 20-30 minutes to exercise.
Step 2 – Give yourself 2 days of rest between workouts (so for example, you can do Monday and Thursday each week).
Follow a structured program that doesn’t have ridiculous “fluff”, hits all your major muscle groups to crank your metabolism and burn the most calories… plus one that takes you 30 seconds or less to memorize because you’re busy. (You don’t have time to learn a complicated routine, right?)
Now, if you can do 3 days a week, that’s even better… but 2 is the “bare minimum” approach and you can still get results as long as you promise yourself “no fluff” and do MORE of what works.
Yep. That’s about it. Here’s a sample:
Day 1: Ladder Density Madness
Do the following resting only as needed. In circuit one, you’ll do 1 rep of each exercise. In the next circuit, you’ll do 2 reps of each exercise.
Continue in this fashion, adding one more rep with every circuit, until 20 minutes are up. Once you reach 20 minutes, rest 1 minute and move into the finisher.
1A) KB Reverse Lunge (1/side, 2/side, etc., etc.)
1B) Close Push Up (1, 2, etc., etc.)
1C) KB Row (1/side, 2/side, etc., etc.)
Do the following, resting when needed.
2) Jumping Jacks (100)
By the way, you’ll get a Zero Equipment version with every single workout, too.
Are you a beginner? You’re covered. You’ll get 10 Beginner Workouts, too using the Bare Minimum approach without the fluff.
By the way, this isn’t your typical “run of the mill” page, either. I was surprised my friend Mike “called out” the fitness industry like this…
To getting motivated and fit without the fluff,

Forest here again – that was some awesome stuff Mike!
I know this will resonate strongly with a lot of folks – ESPECIALLY around this busy holiday season, where time for your workouts is short, and you need to be as “minimalist” as possible, so to speak –
So are YOU intrigued?
Well, that’s was just a little sample for ya …
